I've offered everything I know about these clones in this thread, good, bad and indifferent. Those who PM me to ask Qs that I've already answered in this thread won't get an answer in PM because laziness is not something I spend my free time rewarding and I truly don't have the time even if I felt differently.

I humbly apologize to those who don't receive instant gratification through PM. I've always done the best I can with helping people get the best out of the hobby and in years past I wrote manuals, a setup guide, spent time as a beta tester, produced graphics for manuals, participated on many forums and answered many more PMs than I possibly could these days.

BTW, if you'd just ask your Q here, there are many more people who will see it and your chances of getting the correct answer will increase.

My pm had nothing to do with this thread, had nothing to do with laziness, and I asked my question to multiple people but figured you would have had the best answer. Its over and done now but just wanted to make a point. You spend time posting in threads once they are off topic and brag about your pm inbox, but yet I sent you a pm several months ago that was never even responded to. You seem like you have great knowledge in almost any application of a sub system but yet when someone sends you a pm its put on the back burner to random posts in threads that are heading in the wrong direction.

I'm far from lazy and use the search function on a daily basis because I'm not full of knowledge about most audio components, tests, and their results. And, I dont doubt that a "lot" of people do send you questions that the answer could be found rather quickly with the use of "search" being here or google. Thats not my point at all. Everyone isnt lazy and a bunch of questions cant be answered through a search, they require talking with someone that has experience with an amplitude of applications.

Re-read your post and you might get an idea why I don't answer every PM.
My post is what it is and I'm just pointing out the obvious. I do understand that you might get pms upon pms but dont brag about it then put down those who do pm you by calling them lazy. Those that make the most out of our hobby go out of their way to make sure that their knowledge is shared with whomever so seeks it. There is no way to gain knowledge without trying to seek it from somewhere.

Ok I have know idea what I was thinking when I said the wattage about the 21 earlier. This is what Mark said in my older email.

The voice coils of these units can take more than 2.5kw. The suspension
could not take that much power - probably 1500 watts above resonance and
about half below resonance. Keep this in mind when you go to set up your
system.


SO just want to be clear before I get yelled at.

Thanks for the pics Rumpel

Tang just got back to me from Sanway. Answered all my questions quickly so hopefully only another week and I will be able to order one.

Does the clone just have an IEC plug?

They stated in the email it will come with a Euro plug for 220vac. As long as it is a IEC I have plenty of Australian plugs laying around.

Don't know if it was already mentioned earlier in the thread, but can the amps be ordered with the quieter fans already installed?

I would love that if this were an option. Somehow, I doubt it.

Is the Sanway version any better or worse than the other? price being the same or similar?

It was $400 to ship 4 of them to NY so I'm guessing ~$200 for two.

well, or $100 per unit, that is great news. I was thinking it was 400 per unit which put them a little too steep for me Still not sure when Ill order but a pair of these with eventually four ultras is looking mighty tempting...

I just sent off another email right before I read this post asking about the fan option. I am guessing no but never hurts to ask.

I chose the Sanway because Not did a thread on it and atleast has proven to me these will work. SO I would be more worried about the other company.

40000watts and 3 phase power that's crazy. And the price is just a few more dollars than a bunch of clones.

How much would 3 phase cost to install? It already will cost me 250 for 20amps powerpoint so I would hate to see what 3 phase would cost.

Hey everyone I just got this message back from Tang at Sanway:

Dear David,

Please tell me what loudspeaker you will connect the FP14000? tell me the rated power for each loudspeaker too. then my engineer will install another quieter fans specail for you.

Thank you,
Johnson


So it sounds like they can put a quieter fan in.

That's great! Seems odd he wanted to know what speakers you were planning to use. I know it's probably to determine the load and how stressed the amp would be in use but from what I understand the amp is loud as soon as you turn it on regardless of the load. Now if you could select the fans since Not has already shown what works well in use then done deal.

I'm still surprised today that variable speed fans aren't the default. Maybe someone needs
to make an add-on circuit to retrofit any amplifier to get this function.

If you are worry to spend the money on a real Labgruppen and looking at those clone plus if you are in America you cannot afford 3 phase in your house. Easiest way would be a big a$$ generator. Plus that amp i did refer to will go probably in the 8-10k $ .

All the users of LG clone amp mind to share what's the gain setting & VPL setting you are using especially as it run in bridged mode? if the amp running in bridge mode, are we going to leave the VPL setting in default setting for channel 2 or B?

Common sense will win no matter what. Just make sure you are aware of your drivers and capabilities. Someone smarter will chime in soon.

thylantyr I just got done reading a bunch of threads on you comparing other amps and talking about a modded 3402 PLX or whatever model and having car batteries support for the rail voltage. Did you ever make such a thing with batteries?

And is there a link for the modded PLX amp?

PKN 3PHASE-40K is the Labgruppen killer. Labs are nowhere near to its power...
